Director's Message

July 15th, 2021
Hello Cannon River STEM School Community!

I am honored to be leading our wonderful school and enthusiastic about rolling up my sleeves and getting to work! I am eager to get to know the CRSS students and families this fall and to really become part of this vibrant and unique school. 

In today’s world, STEM programming and environmental education are particularly relevant. As a society, we have been confronted with multifaceted challenges related to the pandemic, social justice issues, climate change and ever-evolving technology innovations. Our goal at Cannon River STEM School is to prepare our students to face these opportunities and challenges with knowledge, courage, and perseverance. 

One important priority for me, as your school leader, is to have an open dialogue with families. To that end, your children’s health and safety is of the utmost importance. We need your input HERE to find out what matters to you as we face the complexities of COVID, health guidelines, variants, and vaccines. 

Please fill out the COVID SAFETY SURVEY! It will be available on our website for the foreseeable future. And, as always, contact me if you have any questions at or by calling the main office. 

With warm regards, 

Wendy Fisher
Executive Director
Cannon River STEM School
